Get Anikka on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

A local teen is asking for your help as she aims to make it on to the popular talk show.

Anikka Abbott is on a mission, and she needs for your help.

The 17 year old recently set up a page on Facebook recruiting her friends and family to watch her sing the "Queen of the Night" by Mozart that she recently performed at her choir concert. 

The Gig Harbor High School student said just within 48 hours after posting the video on YouTube, it got 211 views.

Now she's kicked off a campaign to get on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The popular talk show host is currently recruiting young artists for her brand new record label, Eleveneleven

DeGeneres has already signed three young singers, including Greyson Chance, whose cover of Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi" went viral in 2010. The video currently has more than 40 million views.

So far, Abbott has collected more than 2,000 views, but her goal is to hit 10,000. She said she plans on submitting the video to the television show once she turns 18 next month. 

In the meantime, enjoy her YouTube video and spread the word!
